RELOCATION / DESTINATION SERVICES

"For your new employees / expatriates from abroad, it is very important to be able to concentrate as quickly and intensively as possible on the new task area and company environment at the new location. With our many years of expertise,
our relocation team will be happy to help safe and efficient in a professional way."


The ACENTUM Relocation specialists are working for these important services in the context of international assignments, as well as their many years or decades of experience, with a high degree of know-how and great enthusiasm for the best results for our customers. For this, they also have a high degree of communication skills and have been locally anchored in the respective cities for many years, with the best contacts to real estate companies, international schools and other service providers around the topic of relocation or international staff deployment.

In addition to the important aspects of expatriates, it is very important that the accompanying families feel comfortable from the beginning in the new country and in the new private environment. A very good start at the new center of life abroad is the basis for the success of a posting and an important element to prevent a possible underperformance or even premature termination for private reasons.
We support foreign employees competently in the search for accommodation, find the right schools for the children and support accompanying spouses in finding a job in Switzerland. For sustainable success, ACENTUM maintains a far-reaching network of international schools and housing administrators.

Often it is the small everyday questions about forms and special features in Switzerland, which the employees/assignees at the beginning of a stay in Switzerland causes a lot of trouble and concerns. ACENTUM therefore offers an expatriate hotline to provide fast and competent information on everyday matters. Our employees are specially trained for this, as some of them moved to Switzerland from abroad themselves and therefore familiarized themselves with the initial difficulties, already know the whole subject in detail from their own experience, and can accordingly "put themselves into the position of expatriates".

For relocation support abroad, we are happy to arrange for you to contact our competent network partners from the ACENTUM GLOBAL NETWORK.
